Track Name: Clean Skits
i call the place when attitudes are hot
when every nerve is bare
it gives some kind of levity to the tone in there
i hear them laughing on the other side
i start the questionnaire
it gives some kind of levity to the tone in there
the sudden urge to make them blush
i feel the rush

i make strange comments in public
ones they can overhear
it brings some kind of levity to the tone round here
even the hot bloods turn their heads
i give them back a sneer
it brings some kind of levity to the tone round here
the sudden urge to make them blush
i feel the rush
Track Name: Guidelines For Schooling
stone, brick and mortar, the walls have their order
my brothers, they loiter, some nurture, some torture
the days have their number

first comes uneasiness, the human lightning rod
catching the heat before anyone else does
second is waiting for luck to improve
are they laughing at him? no they‘re laughing at you

third is the shame of a job poorly done
he just needed more time and there simply was none
fourth comes the fights, agitated and thin
with three against one there’s no chance of a win

fifth is the effort of building rapport
with instructors negligent of what they’re there for
sixth comes the picture day, looking your best
fake smile to compliment how sharply you’ve dressed
Track Name: Free Jazz Complaint
get it together man, rein in the noise
offending the senses, just you and the boys
searing the soft white ears of another
pissing on any semblance of covers
setting the standard

screeching in high tones, blast on the hi-fi
ripping a new one, especially tongue tied
shrill as a feline out in heat
making the front row leave their seat
setting the standard

have you any suggestions for newbies or scholars?
lessons for popping and bristling collars
what a horrible din, a terrible noise
a racket unbridled, all part of the ploy
the neighborly nuisance, the terrible noise
the clamorous idol, certain to annoy

mocking the audience who needs to connect
a cavalier showing that gets no respect
pushing the host right to her wit’s end
eviscerating the tradition
setting the standard
Track Name: Preowned
throw it away
no moral difference in wasting the useful and breaking and entering
making my day
it’s the holiday that no one else wanted
re-gifting the vaunted

from advert to advert, commercials of clutter
that’s commerce commencing, it’s making me shudder

purchasing the new one makes for hand me downs
it’s how we’re given things
fading interest in the old one makes for hand me downs
it’s how we’re given things

scouring the landfill
filling the pockets of a slightly worn dark twill
unopened razors, score a point for baby faced thrills
and all that comes along with them

luxury of circumstance
the most discerning give the rubbish a second glance
shiny decanter and a cellular from last year
it’s out of fashion, i fear

bended out top shape
i bent it back and now my mother says it looks great
a stack of magazines to give a boy a headrush
inspiring crush after crush

many gems to choose from
jump from the high horse and you might just find yourself one
discarded opportunities, a second chance store
why should we ever pay more?
